Description Enrico Scholz 2005-11-16 05:13:33 EST
Description of problem:

'saslauthd' is a very useful daemon needed for a lot of use cases and does not
have many dependencies.

'dbconverter-2' is used in some corner cases only but has huge dependencies
(libmysqlclient.so.15 libpq.so.4).

Therefore, these programs should be in different packages so that people who
want only 'saslauthd', do not have to install the MySQL + PostgreSQL deps.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Hmm, actually, there's no reason I can see why dbconverter-2 should have those
dependencies, since it only accesses sasldb files directly (i.e., without going
through the auxprop APIs).

Any chance to get this fixed in FC5 before we enter some freeze?
